Thanks From WISH

Dear Editor,

On Saturday May 7 the Rockaway WISH Women’s Organization held its First Annual Baby Drive. We had expected a good turnout, but we had a HUGE turnout. We had to call Matt Harris from Small Moving and ask him to bring a larger truck than we had ordered. We filled up the whole large moving truck! Once again the Rockaway community showed overwhelming kindness and generosity. When the organization we had donated to, The Bridge to Life, received our delivery they could not believe the large amount of items. Here is part of the email from the organization:

Hi Beth!

When you said moving truck I expected a small moving truck, but the one you sent was bigger! That was amazing and it really warmed our hearts to see so many items being donated. Thank you and the ladies of ROCKAWAY WISH and the parishioners of St. Francis De Sales parish.

People have been calling me about donating more items and their web site is TheBridgetoLife.org. They are located in Flushing.

A special thanks goes to St. Francis de Sales for allowing us to use the Small Hall, Matt Harris from Small Moving, all of the Rockaway WISH women who gave up a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and to the nice boys whom we called over from the schoolyard to help us fill up the truck.

Thanks again to everyone who donated and helped that day.

See you next year!
